In the U.S.:
Legislation of every state requires business entities to have Registered Agents.
Information on a Registered Agent is open to the public and is published on the Secretary of State website.
A Registered Agent receives service of process and other legal notices on behalf of a company and sends such notices timely to the company.
A Registered Agent is usually designated at the time a company registers in a state, but it can be changed anytime.
American Corporate Services, Inc. offers this service in every state.
Outside the US:
Legislation of all jurisdictions requires every corporation or company in the country to have a Registered Agent.
Depending on the country, a Registered Agent can be represented by:
- a resident private individual;
- a local corporation;
- a foreign corporation, authorized to operate in the country.
Registered agents will timely forward notices and send all legal papers and judiciary documents to the company.
American Corporate Services Inc. provides this service for all jurisdictions where the main service package is introduced.
